All adults and high-risk vulnerable people are eligible for vaccines. And on May 10, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced they have approved and recommended the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for adolescents 12-15 years of age.

Mobile clinics are being organized to go to communities with language barriers, lack of computer access and transportation, as well as mistrust of government.  Look for notices in your community and also on Hola America News Facebook page.

You do not need to be a citizen.  Health providers cannot ask about immigration status.
